Memphis is a destination that has made a significant impact on American culture as we know it. The city was prominent during the Civil Rights movement and is the birthplace of blues music. Visitors to the city will love the historical attractions, unique community gatherings, world-class BBQ, and more.
Vintage901 is entering its first year, and event runners are looking to set a new standard for Tennessee food and wine themed events. The goal of this event is to showcase great food, wine, and music while bringing a variety of people together to share their individual stories. The event lasts three days and each day presents patrons with a new experience. Laurie Forster, a contributor to networks like Fox News and NBC because of her knowledge of wine, will be the Grand Sommelier. Music acts including Monty Alexander (Friday), Willie Ziavino and the C.O.T. Band (Saturday afternoon), Nick Black (Saturday evening), and Stephen Lee (Sunday) will be performing individually. Vintage901 is also an event that serves the community, supporting the Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis. We got the chance to interview event founder, Stephanie Ferreira, to speak about this first-time showcase of wine and food.
